Invitation to Conference "Utilization and protection of halophytes and salt-affected landscapes"

September 4-6, 2013, Kecskemét, Hungary

 

 

Conference Topics

 

-Ecology and utilisation of halophytes

-Protection of saline lakes, grasslands and other salt-affected habitats -Ecological consequences of soil amelioration

 

-New approaches and results in the amelioration of sodic soils, under irrigation and rain fed conditions (chemical, agrotechnical, biological and complex amelioration practices, afforestation measures)

 

-Use of saline waters in agriculture

 

-Ecology and soil-plant correlations in native salt-affected habitats

 

-Prevention and prediction of secondary salinization/sodication/alkalization due to irrigation

 

-Prevention of ecological catastrophes and other off-site consequences of secondary salinization

 

-Increase of public awareness and education for the prevention of secondary salinization

 

-The role of geological and other environmental conditions in the genesis of saline and sodic soils

 

-Groundwater depth, concentration and its relationship with salinization/sodication/alkalization of soils

 

-Classification of salt-affected soils for international correlation, land use and land evaluation

 

-Spatial and temporal changes in salinity/sodicity/alkalinity status of salt-affected areas

 

-Assessment of soil salinity/sodicity/alkalinity with new laboratory and field techniques

 

-Remote sensing and GIS in the assessment, mapping and monitoring of salinity/sodicity/alkalinity status of soils

 

-Agrogeological problems related to salinization/sodication/alkalization

 

-Mapping of salt-affected soils based on environmental correlation

 

-Modern methods for the characterization and diagnosis of physico-chemical and colloid-chemical properties of sodic soils
